2005 Round-up

*Auuugh* ! This is the second time I am writing this post. I had almost completed my previous post and then I erroneously closed the browser window. Boom. Now I know why Gmail's auto-save to the draft folder is so useful.

2005 is almost done. I thought it would be nice to do a quick roundup of the various opinions we posted, incase you missed any. Thanks to all the readers who have sent emails to us - we had a lot of fun voicing our opinion and it good to hear that you had fun reading too.

So here is the Round-up:
